check presentation small

The Crookston Pickleball Association has been able to utilize the University of Minnesota Crookston Wellness Center on Tuesday evenings and Sunday afternoons during the past academic year.  The Association approached the campus about the possibility of using the facility due to the sport's growing popularity and an increase in club members. They recently presented a check to Kamille Meyer, director of the Wellness Center at UMN Crookston to support athletics.  

"They have been a great addition and we are pleased to have them use the Wellness Center," says Meyer. "The Association offers to teach UMN Crookston students a new sport and the vision is to continue to grow the relationship between its members and the students."

UMN Crookston Athletics and the Rec and Wellness Department are deeply appreciative of the donation and the Association's willingness to develop relationships with students!
